Favorite and not-so-favorite automobile shows

I'm really digging "Garage Squad". I really like how they involve the family members in transforming their hunks of junks into something really special. I think my favorite episode so far was the 1967 flat black Chevelle that a Marine once owned and died due to PTSD. That episode had everyone in tears.

And Heather Storm is some kind of eye candy. She's not smokin' hot like some supermodel, but since she's a gearhead and can turn wrenches, she is SO MUCH more attractive than ANY supermodel. I'd let her work on my car any day.

On the other side of the coin, "Motor Week" is my least favorite. John Davis, who is the host of the show, has an exaggerated inflection in his voice that gets under my skin. His partner, Pat Goss, is even worse. He talks as though his audience is a bunch of 2nd graders. I still watch it though....

What ?!

40 views, and not ONE mention of my "other girlfriend" Heather Storm ?!?!

Oh that's right. You guys aren't like those other horn dogs in the Bimmerfest forum, LOL.



(Had to reply to my own thread. Can't get shut out, you know ??)

Garage squad is good.

Mighty car mods is usually fun. Same with Dirt every day, roadkill, engine Masters.

None of them ??

That's odd. They're usually on cable in Velocity Channel.

That's a good one too. Those guys are pretty funny, and seem to have fun during their builds.

I've never heard of them either. Then again, we don't have cable or Sat TV, and spend very little time in front of the boob tube.
